Campaign medals awarded for service in the Regiment
The medals are worn in the sequence shown here.
The Australian Service Medal 1939-45 falls within the Australian System of Honours and Awards. The others are Imperial medals, i.e. awarded under the British system of honours and awards, as Australia did not have its own system in the 1939-45 period.
Further information is available at the Defence Honours & Awards web site. Click on ‘Campaign medals’ then ‘World War II’.
We point out that many individual members of the Regiment received, and wear with pride, medals not listed here. They include those that recognise their service in Crete and Tobruk, and others related to POW experiences. These are not included on this page at present. Instead, the medals and stars depicted here are those awarded to all eligible members of the Regiment within the Imperial and subsequently Australian systems of honours and awards.
